What We Share Project

by Ellen Mueller on July 11, 2016, no comments

What We Share MapI am excited to be preparing for the What We Share Project, a series of 6 vinyl artworks in the street-facing windows of downtown Buckhannon buildings.

This free public project will run from August 5 – 19, 2016, and is best visible during daylight hours. The imagery aims to bring focus to things we, as a community, can be proud to share, such as various public goods and the natural beauty of West Virginia.

To help the public locate the artworks, I will have paper copies of maps (see picture here) available at Festival Fridays on August 5, 12, and 19 to help promote the work, which is all within walking distance of Jawbone Park.

Electronic copies of the map are also available for printing at http://tinyurl.com/mueller-print-map or for online use at http://tinyurl.com/mueller-web-map 

If you know anyone that would like to promote this project, a press release is available at http://tinyurl.com/hpldf7h

I had a great time at ThinkTank9 in Bozeman at Montana State University, June 8-11, 2016. I was in a group focused on identity issues and global citizenship as it relates to the art/design foundations classroom. I met fantastic people, and we came up with some excellent take-aways that I will be using to to evaluate my own classes and assignments. There was a lot of focus on how to help students cultivate empathy and address challenging topics in the classroom.

Many kudos to the people who put this great conference together!
